The Great Beauty
Paolo Sorrentino was born in Naples. His films include One Man Up (01), The Consequences of Love (04), The Family Friend (06), Il Divo (08), which won the Prix du Jury at Cannes, This Must Be the Place (11) and The Great Beauty (13), which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
This colorful and seductive, Oscar-winning homage to all that’s exquisite, decadent and disappointing about Rome follows Jep Gambardella, a journalist who, upon turning 65, begins to reassess his life spent enjoying luxuries—perhaps at his soul’s expense. Full of wit, spectacle, sexiness and some incredible parties, Paolo Sorrentino’s latest truly is a great beauty.
